I’m the type of mom that likes to make special treats for my kids, especially for holidays like Valentine’s Day. I’m not the type to spend a lot of extra time using cookie cutters and difficult recipes to accomplish such. That’s why I like products that make it easy to make fun treats for my kids like heart shaped pancakes and brownies – perfect for Valentine’s Day or any day that you want to show your kids a little extra love.
How to Make Heart Shaped Pancakes and Brownies
Making heart shaped pancakes and brownies couldn’t be easier! I use the Holstein FUN Brownie Maker. It makes fun shaped treats quicker than if you cooked on the stove or baked in the oven!
I received product to facilitate this post.
The Holstein FUN Brownie Maker is so easy to use. Simply scoop in the batter, close the lid and within minutes, you’ll have fluffy, delicious heart shaped pancakes, brownies, or any other treat you’d like.
I actually find this to be an easier way to make pancakes too. Plus, it makes portion control easier, so you know exactly how much each person is consuming, something important for all of us, but especially if you have health concerns and counting carbs per serving like I do since my kids are Type 1 Diabetic and need insulin for every carb they consume.
Making a quick batch of brownies has never been easier. In the time it takes me to preheat my oven, my kids can already be enjoying fresh, hot brownies when I use the FUN Brownie Maker!
Again, this makes portion control easy. When I make a batch of brownies traditionally, I have to try to cut the squares evenly in order to know how many carbs per serving. With the brownie maker, every heart is the same size, so I know exactly how many carbs per serving. With the caramel topping, these brownies were just 20 carbs per heart.
The FUN Brownie Maker is not only easy to use but easy to clean up, just wipe down after each use and you are done. The surface is non-stick so nothing is left behind to scrub.
Kids love the fun heart shapes, making breakfast or dessert time extra special – any time of year. I suggest picking up your own FUN Brownie Maker in time for Valentine’s Day, it’s a very affordable kitchen appliance that you’ll use over and over again.
I had fun whipping up a batch of easy pancakes using the new Holstein Housewares Bakeware including Silicone Measuring cups and spoons and whisk. Holstein Housewares Bakeware makes baking in the kitchen fun with fashion-forward colors made with the popular silicone.
Since my kids were diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, we measure everything – not just made-from-scratch recipes. We measure cereal, fruit, nuts, snacks, and everything else. We have to know exactly how much food our kids are consuming so we can calculate the carbs per serving and insulin they need. So, we use measuring cups all day long. For me, it is extra exciting to have a new set of fun measuring cups and spoons! I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t appreciate adding a little color and fun to cooking and baking.
You can find Holstein products at Kohl’s, Walmart, and on Amazon.com.
